GP F-86 micro
A chilly, but beautiful morning to maiden 'er! I have an E-Flite Mig 15, and a Habu, and they are both GREAT flyers, and handle very well, but unless i got a freak, this F-86 hauls BUTT, and is VERY responsive compared to the other two which really surprised me! The only "kinda" quirky thing i noticed is in a climb at speed, as the speed falls off, its rather quick to stall, but then loops itself over and recovers...nothin bad, just a little quirky!????:ws: Lottsa fun!:) Tried to post a pic, but the download failed.....OOPS!

Bill if you get a security token missing error message, just resize your photo a bit smaller. The F-86 is a cool looking micro.

I "had" a F-86 for 2.2 flights and it was so touchy that if "any" wind came up it would blow around like a leaf. It was VERY touchy too. Any up or down , left or right was almost violent. It is a display on my wall of butts now but the electronics and power plant is on a Hitec Hawkeye hand launch toy glide. I used a mixing cup for the tailpipe. I also heated the wings slightly and added some upward sweep to them so the rudder and elevator were more effective. I kinda started a trend at the field with it. It was a pretty plane while it lasted.
